Large Clear Glass Vase (Uncoloured)
« on: March 24, 2007, 03:24:54 PM »
Hi,

I'm new to this board. I was wondering if anyone knows of any vase manufacturer that makes clear uncoloured glass vases 20" or more. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

L.

Virtually any glassworks making vases, but florists would be the cheapest option.

Hi, Largesse,
It was I, who pointed you here, having signally failed to find a Czech supplier of items in this sort of scale.
Anyone have any idea, who LSA or Next for example source their items of similar size from?
My apologies that I can't help further, but I'm sure some-one here might know.
Regards,
Marcus

LSA have their stuff made by Krosno; Next I have no idea.  But the large items you find in garden centres are mostly from China or Romania. It all depends how many you need....

I think Frank's on the right lines with florists - if it were me looking I'd have a chat with some local florists and see if they'll be willing to divulge their suppliers.

Le Casson,

Thanks for the referral. I wanted to clarify that I was looking for vases 20" and higher (clear and uncoloured). I also live in Toronto, Canada a fair distance from EU countries. I wonder if many imports or makers stock this type of vase.

Thanks

L.

Hi,
No problem. I has just occurred to me that there was/is a major glass trade fair, held on an annual basis, which must be fairly well-publicised, there. If you can find a list of exhibitors, you might find some-one based in Toronto, who may be able to help.
Regards,
Marcus
